Media 100 qualifies raid storage solutions for new version 11 systems

Media 100, a leading provider of advanced editing systems for the corporate, broadcast, postproduction, and multi-media industries, today announced the qualification of RAID Incorporated’s Falcon Series storage solutions for their new version 11 product line; Media 100 HD Suite, Media 100 HDe and Media 100 SDe.
“We have a long history with the team at RAID and work hand-in-hand with them to ensure Media 100 systems gain the maximum performance and throughput from RAID’s outstanding storage products,” comments Rob Newman, product manager, Media 100. “The qualification of RAID’s Falcon series provides our Media 100 customers a proven, high-quality IT storage product that they can cost effectively scale according their capacity needs.”
The Media 100 company began shipping the new version 11 systems – Media 100 HD Suite, Media 100 HDe, and Media 100 SDe - in June 2006. In addition to the qualification of the RAID, Inc. Falcon series products, the new version 11 systems offer 10-bit uncompressed HD and SD editing capabilities, support for broadcast-quality format conversions, and increased system performance leveraging Mac OS X® and AJA Video OEM solutions. The new Media 100 solutions also represent the first step towards native integration with the Boris FX product line, bringing the world-class compositing and effects technology seamlessly within the Media 100 interface. “The Falcon series provides high-capacity, high-bandwidth storage for use in data-intensive application environments such as Media 100 and Boris FX,” explains Marc DiZoglio, Executive Vice President at RAID Inc. “With rapid changes in media technology, the evolution of cross-digital platforms, the need for increased creative inspiration and cost-efficient execution, the Falcon series outperforms other storage systems on the market while offering exceptional value and low cost.”
With the Falcon II and III storage products, Media 100 users can now maximize up to 3.4TB capacity per system and 7,200 RPM to ensure fast access to data including multi-gigabyte graphic and digital image files. The Falcon II performance is based on new architecture which incorporates a 266 MHz ASIC, integrated dual PCI-X bus design and support for double data rate (DDR) memory which provides internal bandwidth up to 2GB/sec, making it ideal for high-throughput applications.
The Falcon III series of 4Gb Fibre to SATA-2 storage systems were designed for environments that demand the ultimate in performance such as cluster, database server, short window disk-to-disk backup, and video editing/compositing applications such as Media 100 and Boris FX.
"We consider the 3TB RAID Inc. Falcon and Media 100's editor as the ultimate solution, allowing us to maintain several major ongoing projects online at once. Editing in 22 languages for an international company like Alltech keeps our project schedule very tight,” comments Chad Robinson, editor for corporate media, Alltech Inc.. “The Media 100/ RAID Inc. Falcon combination gives us the affordable flexibility needed to serve our market of 85+ countries around the world."
